President Trump early Tuesday said he has an "absolute right" to share facts with Russia after a report late Monday that he revealed highly classified intelligence to Russian officials during a meeting last week.

"As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining...to terrorism and airline flight safety," the president tweeted.

"Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism."


The Washington Post first reported that Trump revealed highly classified intelligence information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador while meeting with them last week at the White House.

Trump allegedly revealed "code-word information" related to threats from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) that had been provided by a U.S. ally in the region, according to the Post.

One U.S. official told the newspaper that the information was so sensitive it had not been provided to U.S. allies.

Trump discussed the information, according to the report, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the Oval Office during a meeting last Wednesday - a day after he fired former FBI Director James Comey.

Trump has created a war with the intelligence agencies in the US.  They're going to take him out just watch.  If its not this it will be something else.  But someone has to save the country from Trump.

Let me be the first to know the facts that President Trump shared with the Russians. As long as these facts remain secret we the public cannot judge whether Donald Trump has broken any law.

You know what?

Your "intelligence agencies" are all criminal organisations and Donald Trump has done me a personal favour by undercutting them.

Barack Obama should go to jail for snooping on y e-mails.

By law, the President of the USA has the legal authority to disclose classified information in the conduct of foreign affairs with Russian officials. President Trump didn't break the law but the people who leaked this news to the media broke the law as the private conversation between the President of the USA and Russian officials in the White House is a confidential matter affecting the national security of the USA.
